A vista of the silk road route region in Pakistan

A vista in the Silk Road route region. It goes through a most beautiful part of Pakistan before it crosses over to Kashghar in China. The silk road was there long before the Islamic period began. It brought prosperity to Muslim regions and China during the golden age of Islam (8th to 13th century). This picture was taken at dawn in the Phander Lake area. I took this and the other posted pictures during our travels of the northern areas of Pakistan.
